Trump 2028?

On Wednesday Benjy Sarlin had a bit of fun scaring his readers at Semafor. “Don’t assume this is Donald Trump’s last run,” he warned them. 

I, a pessimist by nature, read the piece with puzzlement. “How can he run in 2028?” I wondered. “He’ll be term-limited by then.”

But I understood Sarlin’s anxiety. In 2023 the Trump saga feels like a horror-movie franchise. After endless mayhem, someone finally slays the monster—and then there he is again somehow, alive and well in a sequel.

Nightmare on Trump Street is only in its third chapter. Given how elderly both of Trump’s parents were before they passed, we should probably start gaming out a release date for chapter four sometime in 2032.
